and not the install files...
(e.g. if you copy c:\windows it won't run either)
if you need just the powerpoint viewer, it can be downloaded from microsoft.com...
hope this helps
I have Microsoft Powerpoint on my desktop, but I need it on my laptop. I lost my cd for Powerpoint, so I burn the one I have on my desktop and burn that file to a blank cd. After I burned the cd, I inserted the disc on my laptop. I screen comes up and I see the powerpoint icon. When I click the icon it says "The operating system is not presently configured to run this application", anyone know why it says this????
